The Licensing Application Process:

Each type of child care facility (center, family child care home, 24-Hour Residential Facilities including Therapeutic Residential Child Care Facility, Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, Shelter, Homeless Youth Shelter, etc.) has its own licensing rules, specific procedures, and what the fee would be for becoming licensed.

CHILD CARE CENTER and FAMILY CARE HOME LICENSE APPLICATION

Individuals interested in applying for a child care center or family care home license to provide care in a child care center or their home may download, view, and print the Child Care Center License Application and Affidavit from the Colorado Department of Human Resources website.  

 A completed application package and Licensing Fee must be submitted to the Division of Child Care at least 90 days prior to the proposed opening date of the facility. After approval of the application package, a licensing specialist schedules an inspection of the facility, and determines whether or not a license should be issued.

Applicants, owners, employees, and residents of licensed child care facilities must also submit fingerprints to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation for a Criminal Background Check, and their names must be checked against the Central Registry of Child Protection.
